History of the Vietnam War 101
Keep it clean!
Any of you tried finding your old stomping grounds on Google Earth? I've been able to find the 2 base camps we resupplied from in III Corps. One was Cu Chi and the other was Tay Ninh. The borders of the camps and many of the interior roads are still clearly visible, as well as the airstrips. I also used Google Earths flight simulator feature (CTRL-ALT-A) and virtually flew from one base camp to the other. I recognized the Song Vam Co Dong River and Go Dau Ha along the way. We were at Go Dau Ha twice. I never dreamed I would one day be able to see such images.
